Steak was to die for, possibly the best I have ever had. Service was friendly and quick. Chilled out atmosphere and well worth a visit.

From start to finish the food and service was brilliant; the interesting and unusual touches are just so lovely it just says it all about this... More

I have heard so much about this place and I finally got to go! It's only small, tucked away down an alley, but the staff are lovely and friendly and the room is nicely done with lots of clocks showing 8'o'clock! The food was really good. I had a trio of salads to start which were small stacks and full... More

We ate on Monday night which is Steak & Burger Night so can't comment on the menu for the rest of the week. The food was well prepared and we both enjoyed our meal, well worth a visit
